According to the United States Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8, “The flag when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”
Northern Indiana Funeral Care offers complete cremation services. If you have an American flag that is no longer worthy of display, please feel free to deliver it to us at 5800 Fairfield Avenue, Suite 215, Fort Wayne, IN 46807. Of course, there is no charge for this service.
Because of this program, we are usually able to cremate each veteran with an
American Flag. We feel the deceased veteran and the retired flag are both treated
in the most patriotic way possible, having served our country proudly.
If you have any questions about this program or if you would like for us to pick up your flag, please give us a call at 1-877-382-2756.
